Resolution Impala Saracens Director of Rugby Fred Ollows expects a bruising battle when his side takes on Menengai Cream Homeboyz in Kenya Cup match day four action at the Jamhuri Park.
Speaking to impalasaracens.com, Ollows said, “We left it for the last play to win that competitive match 32-29 last season. We expect a very physical Homeboyz team. This time we intend to start with higher intensity and maintain interest from kick off.”
The Sarries have made four changes from the side that started last weekend’s 24-12 come from behind win over Strathmore Leos.
Anthony Orege, who played in the ESS competition last week has been recalled to the Kenya Cup team to replace prop Meshack Tunechi.
Paul Mutsami, the fast paced flanker who was on the bench last weekend pulls on the starting openside flanker jersey. His entry into the starting lineup pushes Erick Kerre to his familiar lock position to replace Davis Makori. Makori is away on work commitments.
Scrumhalf Michael Mugo starts from the bench. Directing proceedings from minute one this Saturday will be the versatile Mohammed Omollo.
